No resources found when setting up AWS WAF ACL

I’m trying to set up an ACL for a load balancer, but it does not show up in the Associated AWS resources section when creating the web ACL.

create ACL dashboard

The Resource Type is Regional resources, and the region is the same as my (network) load balancer (us-west-2).

This is the load balancer config:

Note: I have admin access so this isn’t a permission issue, at least not with my IAM user
