I am a new member of the PBC even though I have been using Pinterest for over half a decade! I am very excited to be a part of this community who inspires and helps each other. My question was about the creator fund and how to apply for it. I know the wellness creator fund just opened up but I do not have 1k+ followers on pinterest and would be unable to apply. I am very close to meeting the beauty and fashion requirement and I believe that is opening up soon hopefully! Does Pinterest automatically tell you you're eligible in the Creator Hub on a mobile device? I don't understand how to apply once it does open up.

Thank you to anyone who can help! (:
