Delay With Approvals?

HELP! Is anyone else waiting forever after applying for the AD grant program? We are already an approved nonprofit account and we submitted the application for the adwords program over 10 days ago. When checking the application status page it still says "Product activation received" but from my understanding this should not take so long. Is anyone else experiencing delays like this?

Yep I'm still waiting for ours to be approved. It's been a week now and am still waiting. Did yours get approved in the end?

Me too!  I keep checking every day and it's the same status as you've described. I am now on day 11 waiting for the final approval so the ads we have waiting can run. All steps have been followed and there should not be anything that is in question.

I'm waiting for a week as of now. I thought this might be a good sign, but reading your comments, seems like it's not.

We are now at 24 days, again with "in progress" on status
Any advice on how we can contact Google to progress this?

Waiting for 37 days now! I am fairly certain that the AD Grant program is soon being SHUT DOWN permanently for new grantees. I received a reply from Google(after weeks of waiting) that this was the case and an announcement was imminent but no details were provided and our AD Grant application status has still not changed. It makes sense that AD Grants is being discontinued considering all the similar complaints I see from others waiting to be approved for weeks.

I submitted an application on June 4 so it has been over two weeks now, and nothing. Has ANYONE received approval (or even a response of any kind) to their request for approval recently?

Joel, please start a new thread. Please specify the type of nonprofit, location such as state and country, and tax exempt status if applicable. And the steps you have taken to apply for Google for Nonprofit/Google Ad Grant program.
