Congratulations!
As an Apple Vacations Preferred Account you are eligible to apply for 2019 Co-op funds. 

**Please note that these are the guidelines and terms of use, not the request form, and both must be filled out.


In order to request funds, please visit the link below and complete a co-op request form. Your request will be reviewed and responded to within 5 business days.  Please note, without prior approval of your tactics, you will not receive co-op funds.  All proposed plans and coop request forms must be submitted no later than 2/28/19.  Please also note that requests must be received a minimum of 14 days prior to the run date of the tactic. Agencies are only permitted to spend 50% of their total coop funds Jan-June. All plans will be reviewed by June of 2019.  ALG reserves the right to reduce co-op funds based on a reduction in agency growth.
