Grant Extension Request


In the course of your work, it is possible you may need an extension of your award if your project will not be completed by the current end date and/or if there is a programmatic benefit to continue the work beyond the original end date.  Note that a grant extension does not change the grant award amount. 

Please provide the following information or responses to support the extension request:

  1.  RWJF Grant I.D. number
  2.  The requested new grant end date.
  3.  A brief description of the change in the program/project timeline.
  4.  A brief description of the scope of work that will occur during the extension period.
  5.  Is this new work or work originally planned under the grant?
  6.  What will be the new timeline, benchmarks and/or deliverables?
  7.  If approved, how will you keep us informed that the new timeline is being met?
  8.  The name and email address of the Authorized Official for this grant.[1]



Note: For grants managed by a national program office or national initiative the deputy director(s) of that program will be cc'd on this email. In the Grantee Hub, access the grant for which the extension is being requested.


[1] The authorized official is the individual authorized to sign agreements on behalf of the grantee organization.  This individual will be copied on grant extension correspondence and may be asked to sign a grant agreement amendment should one be deemed necessary.
