Prepare all necessary journal entries to record the City’s revenues for the year ended December 31, 2007, arising from the following events:
a. On January 15, the City received notification that it was the recipient of a $200,000 federal grant to assist in the operation of its “Meals on Wheels” program. The federal government expects to send the cash in about three months. This is not a reimbursement-type grant, and all eligibility requirements have been met.
b. In February the City spent $21,000 on “Meals on Wheels.”
c. In April, the City received the $200,000 from the federal government.
