Google Ad Grants counting toward spend in partner certification... or not?

Hello, I asked this question over in the Partners forum: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Get-Certified/Partner-certification-spend-and-Google-Ad-Gr...

 

I'm asking the same question here because the answers I got were contradictory, I'm not sure who's right, and I think I should have asked here in the first place to get the official version.

 

"If I'm aiming for partner certification, and need to achieve a spend amount, do Google Ad Grants count towards that?"

 

The reason I ask is that all my clients are non-profits using Ad Grants, and I'd really like to be able to say I'm a Google partner when I offer this service.

 

Having come this far in the process, I don't want to abandon it until I'm absolutely certain what the rule is.

As I answered in that other thread: Google Ad Grants is NOT to be used to meet the ad spend requirements of Google Partner status.

This is direct from the Ad Grants team.

Cheers Robert, I'm still figuring out who does what. Thanks for the official word on this.
