The Annual Narrative or Final Narrative Reports are due within 60 days after the year-end date or grant-end date.
Your program financial analyst will be notified that your report has arrived and will distribute it within RWJF. Based on the information you provide, your program officer may contact you to ask for clarification or additional information.
The Annual and Final Narrative reports should briefly answer these questions:
Is a Bibliography needed?
If your program has resulted in products listed, which have not been previously reported to RWJF, you may include a Bibliography at the end of your final narrative report. The Bibliography should be the final part of your final narrative document and should follow this format:
Published articles should be listed first.
All national programs conducting public opinion surveys and/or qualitative research for public release, please refer to Code of Ethics and Practices of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR).
Any products that have the ability to increase learning and have potential to drive change with the goal of building a culture of health should be submitted. These would include materials that recognize, promote, award, or raise awareness of the project or program's results, findings and impact.
Submit products as soon as they are completed, there is no need to wait for your narrative and financial reporting cycle.
See the Grantee Products area for details on product submission.
The Summative Program Report is a substantive record of the activities conducted by the national program office (NPO) during the life of the program, and how these activities helped the national program to meet its goals or objectives. It also describes the national program’s accomplishments and challenges overall. It includes a Bibliography. We will send you a notice to submit the Summative Report one to two months before the end of the final TAD grant.
This report should be submitted during the last year of the national program and it will not replace the need to submit a final report.
What is the size of this report?
The Summative Program Report should not exceed 50 pages including charts and tables.
