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.
