Requesting Payment

When you are ready to begin invoicing NFWF for funds, complete a payment request form and submit it via Easygrants following the instructions below. A video demonstration of the process is also available. In the event that submission of a payment request via Easygrants is not possible, please arrange with your Grants Administrator to submit the payment request via alternate means.

You may request funds for reimbursement at any time and for any amount up to the final 10% of the total award amount, which is typically held back until final reports are submitted. If you wish to request an advance you must detail how the funds will be used and provide justification and a timeline for expected disbursement of these funds.  A request of an advance of funds must be due to an imminent need of expenditure.

NFWF makes payments at the beginning of the month and in the middle of the month, except for the month of January, in which NFWF makes payments only in the middle of the month.

If you request an electronic payment (rather than a check) and your project has multiple funding sources (which are identified on page one of your grant agreement), you may receive multiple electronic payments that total the amount you requested.

Payment Steps

  1. When you are ready to begin invoicing NFWF for funds, complete a payment request form. This form is also available for download in the Submit Payment Request task in Easygrants.
  2. Log in to Easygrants. (Note that only the person marked as the primary contact for a project will have access to create a Submit Payment Request task. If you would like for another person at the recipient organization to access this task, please contact your Grants Administrator.)
  3. Click on "View My Grants" and then click "View Grant" for the grant for which you would like to request payment.
  4. In the dropdown menu "Select Request/Action," choose "Submit Payment Request", and click the "Request" button.
  5. Easygrants will confirm you want to start a new payment request. Click “OK” to continue. You will be redirected to the Submit Payment Request task.
  6. Follow the instructions in the task to download the payment request template and upload the completed payment request and supporting documentation.
  7. Go to the Certification page to certify your submission.
  8. When you are finished, go to the "Review and Submit" page and hit the submit button to send this request to the Foundation.
  9. You will receive a confirmation email from easygrants@nfwf.org when the task has been successfully submitted.
  10. To access an incomplete payment request, log in to Easygrants, then under the "My Tasks" section locate and click on the blue link for the "Payment Request" task. The Easygrants ID number for the project will be displayed to the left of the task name.
  11. To print a hard copy of your Payment Request, log in to Easygrants, click View All Tasks, and click the View PDF button to the right of the Submit Payment Request task.
