The second was a health & safety reimbursement grant. First 5 came out and assessed my program and gave me a very specific list. I could buy only the "safety improvement" items from the list and then get reimbursed after completing the project to their statistic action, or I would get nothing.

My questions are:

Are grants in any way different from the income I receive from parents in the eyes of the IRS?
And, if so, are these two grants treated differently?

"You must report as income the value of your scholarship and the $500. Then, you can deduct as a business expense the value of the scholarship and the $500 based on the normal rules of depreciation. "
