Grant & Ad Approved-But No Activity

I was given access to a newly approved Google Grants account. I (regretfully) didn't go through the exact steps as outlined here when setting it up: https://support.google.com/grants/answer/1689506

 

No billing information was added, but I didn't click on the link they give on that page and didn't follow those exact instructions because I wasn't aware of it until I started troubleshooting.

 

While our application was accepted, the ads I set up have not been activated and it's been nearly a month.

 

I've created new Google accounts and and granted myself Adwords access to them in order to through the process correctly (https://support.google.com/grants/answer/1689506), but it's still not working.

 

Do I need to go through the whole application process again with a new gmail address? If not, what do I need to do for it to be activated?

 

Thank you

When you log into the approved Ad Grants account and go to the billing section, what does it say?
