I want to know how to check for a federal grant offered to me. I want to know if it is legit. This is my reference number AG179. But I also have to pay an activation so i get the rererence number. Is this true or a scam? I received a call from 202-838-7615 for a grant. How do I check if it is legit?

This is definitely a scam. DO NOT pay an "activation". It may sound very official with the reference number and all but these people are just going to take your money. Grants are not awarded in this way and many people have been scammed. See more about these calls  how you can tell if a call is fake and what to do about it in the article about Phone Call Scams.
