When you are ready to begin invoicing NFWF for funds, complete a payment request form (including full bank address and a current date) and email, fax, or mail the completed form to your Grants Administrator. Sending the completed form by email is preferred. In general, we do not pay the full award amount up front — we will make payments throughout the life of the grant, as funds are needed. We do typically hold back 10%-20% of the total NFWF award until final reports are submitted.
NFWF makes payments in the middle of the month and at the end of the month. If you have requested a wire (rather than a check) and your project has multiple funding sources (which would be identified on page one of your grant agreement), you may receive multiple wires that total the amount you requested.
