No longer accepting GrantsPro applications?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I noticed today that on the Grantspro Overview & Eligibility page it says that "The Ad Grants team is no longer accepting Grantspro applications". Does anyone have any insight as to whether this is a temporary measure? My account is eligible for Grantspro today, so I'm hoping that they will be accepting applications again soon!

I just spoke with someone at Google about this very question who told me the program is still available but due to the backlog of GrantsPro applications they are putting a temporary hold on accepting new applications.  They recommended I check back in two weeks.

The grantspro program is on a permanent hold.

Please see the official response from the Ad Grants team regarding grantspro in this thread:

Wow hoping this is the case! We finally became eligible after last month and I was about to submit an application today. I heart sunk when I saw the notice saying it was not accepting applications.

I'll check back later this month, fingers crossed...

Same here, Mike. My client just became eligible and we were about to submit the application...

While I certainly wish Grantspro would continue as well, the project manager has relayed to me that this is a permanent hold on Grantspro - but rest assured, the Ad Grants program itself is not going anywhere.
