Is this program a scam to rip people out of money that they don’t have? I can’t afford this! I have a lot of medical issues and can’t afford to loose this $2400. Do I have to have other people investigate this program?

I don't know what "program" you are referring to. This site is purely informational and a place for people to get true information about grants.

Currently there are several scam artists who call people pretending to be from a government agency amd announcing that you have won a grant. Government agencies NEVER behave that way and we have said that repeatedly in repsonse to people's questions. We certainly have never, and will never, call anyone about winning a grant. Grants don't work that way -- and we certainly don't. You may have been called by someone pretending to be from the CFDA (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance) -- but it's a hoax. Never pay anyone a fee to receive an alleged grant -- especially when you haven't applied for one! This article about Free Money Phone Call Scams may help you identify them in the future.
