Scam affecting Homer Foundation

We have been recently contacted by various individuals alerting us to someone who is utilizing our email address while advertising housing assistance. They are offering support to individuals and asking for personal information (like drivers license and social security numbers) via social media sites. Once they have received your personal information, they discontinue communication.

The Homer Foundation does not offer support to individuals besides specific scholarships. We also do not ask for personal information unless you are applying through our scholarship management software Smarter Select.

If you are contacted by an organization saying they are the Homer Federal Grant Association/Administration asking for personal information, we recommend reporting that account immediately.
