you even don't need to use GREP search. It's enough to use the Text option and choose Forced Line Break in the Change To field

The "Dollar sign" is a special character in Grep. Mostly it is better to use another character for Find and Replace in your text.

 

Untested, but for now:

Try to use in the Grep Find field [$]{2}

 

It may or may not work depending on your operating system.

… or what @Anna Lander said one minute before --> use Text Find and Replace (and not Grep)
