Avoid Grant Scams
No federal government grant-making agency will make phone calls or send emails or letters to solicit money or personal banking information from a potential grant recipient. THIS IS A SCAM. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Avoid Grant Scams has information on identifying grant scams and actions to take if you suspect fraudulent activity. If you think that someone has fraudulently represented Grants.gov or HHS, you can also contact the HHS Fraud Hotline at 800-447-8477.
