About Google Ad Grants rejections

If your Ad Grants enrollment was rejected, you may need to fix one of the following issues before resubmitting your application.

  Your account is set to use a currency other than USD.
Google Ads accounts must be set to USD to receive Ad Grants. At this time, it isn't possible to change your currency settings once you've set them. Please create a new Google Ads account set to USD and reapply to the program.
Your account includes credit card or other billing information.
Please create a new Google Ads account with no payment information and reapply to the program. When creating your new account, skip the billing setup and ignore any messages or notifications suggesting that you submit billing information. Once your account is approved and activated for Google Ad Grants, the billing alerts will disappear.
Your account has features enabled that aren't allowed.
The Google Display Network, Display bids, managed placements, managed placement bids, and automatic bidding are features that can't be used with Ad Grants. Please turn off these features and reapply to the program.

Consult the applicable account creation guide to set up your account correctly.

After correcting any errors, please resubmit your application.
