Grant payments may have multiple line items. The bill for a Cost Reimbursable Grant will be a summary invoice, the payment will be applied to each billable line item. Thus it is best to receive them as a Regular Deposit and apply the payment via a Worksheet.

However, the bill for a Fixed Price Grant will only have 1 billable line item thus can be received as a line item within a Regular Deposit (see steps below) or by itself as an Express Deposit if the Total Invoice Amount = Total Payment Amount.
