Grants 101 - Segregated Account

Grants 101 - Segregated Account
Many times when money is received from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania it will need to be put in a separate account.  Many people make the mistake of co-mingling the funds with other funds.  It is necessary to open up a separate account and deposit the money so it can be fully accounted for, both principal and interest.

The reason that the Commonwealth wants the money in a separate account it because there will be a need to return the interest.  If the funds are comingled it would be difficult to account for the interest.
