What is the general timeline from the time of Letter of Intent submission to the project start date and release of funds by RWJF?

Under normal circumstances it takes approximately 5 months from the time of LOI submission to the release of funds by RWJF. Built into this timeline are the LOI review process, the Full Proposal development and review process, and internal RWJF processes that need to take place prior to fund release. There may be circumstances that will result in a shorter or longer time period between LOI submission and the release of funds, such as a request for revision and resubmission at the LOI or FP stage or a time sensitive project, but in general we recommend that your anticipated project start date be at least 5 months after submission.
