Annual and final narrative reports that are due through December 31, 2023, 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.
We are currently researching new approaches to narrative reporting to improve meaningful and equitable engagement and relationships with grant partners, and contribute to learning and growth. We may ask some grantees to participate in a pilot of possible reporting approaches during 2023.
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 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, 2023. 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 through December 31, 2023.
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.
Sign in to MyRWJF to access Grantee Hub. In Grantee Hub, use the My Grants tile to select the grant for which you will submit a report. Select the menu icon on the upper right side of your grant Overview page, then choose the Budget menu item.
