    Grant is totally different from subcontract. Under the subcontract mechanism, you are buying goods or services and have control to pay only when the contractor accomplished or delivered what was in the contract; but, under the grant mechanism, you are gifting money, you are supporting an entity's activity for public support. You should pay to grantee ever if they do not meet the works under grants. Therefore, please be very careful while designing a grant.
