Hello to whoever is reading, 

on 26th of September, i got accepted for NONPROFIT, after that i applied for Grant on 4th of October. 
Signed up for Adwords and did as i was directed. 
Manual Bidding, CPC under $2, Search network only, And totally relevant ads and keywords.


I got the following response on 17th of October

on 1st of December, i re applied. i believed it was in some error as i was totally entering right information and following right steps. 
Here is what i got today in my email.


Thank you for submitting your AdWords Express account for review.

The account you submitted is affected by a technical issue and cannot be activated for Ad Grants. In order to become a Grantee, you'll need to create a new account and submit it for review. Please read the directions below:

***PLEASE NOTE: When you create a new AdWords/AdWords Express  account, you must choose a different email address than you used for your initial account.

Now i don't understand what exactly is the problem. Seems like there is some error. 

I am re applying again and will see what kind of response i get this third time. 
But if any Adwords expert is here to help, i would love to talk to him.
