Guidance

Annual and final narrative reports that are due through December 31, 2022 are not required for all grants, except for those grants structured as expenditure responsibility. However, please do continue to submit interim and final financial reports for all grants, which are needed to trigger periodic and final payments.

 

Note: Grantees managed by a national program office (NPO) might have more specific reporting requirements. Reach out to your NPO if applicable to clarify requirements.

Annual Narrative Reporting

When is this report due?

The Annual Narrative Report is typically due 60 days after the end of each reporting period. However, as noted above, narrative reports are waived for most grants through December 31, 2022. If you wish to share updates with the Foundation, please feel welcome to reach out to your program officer.

Reminder:  Most grants are not required to submit the Annual Narrative Report during 2022. 

Annual Financial Reporting

When is this report due?

The Annual Financial Report is only required for multi-year grants. This report lets the Foundation know how you have spent the grant funds over the course of the reporting period.

 

Grant expenses are expected to follow the approved award budget.  Financial reporting allows RWJF to monitor whether the grant expenses are staying on plan or whether adjustments to the plan will become necessary.

 

Financial reports are due 60 days after the end of each budget period and at the end of the grant.

 

Note:

  • Grantees managed by a national program office (NPO) might have more specific reporting requirements.  Reach out to your NPO if applicable to clarify requirements.
  • The following reporting instructions and templates apply to all grantees. 

 

What to do if budget line items change from approved amounts?

See Budget Revision Guidelines.
