Under GASB Statement No. 33, the state grant is a Voluntary Non-Exchange Transaction for which revenues are recognized when the eligibility requirements are met. At that point, the revenue and the receivable are recorded. Other Financing Sources include proceeds from bonds and interfund transfers, neither of which are Revenues. Answer C is correct.

The Water Utility Enterprise Fund will recognize revenues for the water services billed to other units in the government. The units receiving water services will recognize expenditures (in the case of Governmental Fund types) or expenses (in the case of Proprietary and Fiduciary Funds).
