Any spam you receive that claims you can get government grants or benefits for yourself alone are always scams, because the scammers always charge a small initial fee, maybe $2, to "access their materials." That's how they get access to credit card numbers. What they are hoping isn't noticed in the small print, is that afterward, they intend to charge anywhere from $30 to $80 every single month, or even more. They claim that this is to continue using their website, where they hope their "client" will continue to look for a grant they can't get.
Government benefits such as social security and food stamps are easy for individuals to get, as long as they're qualified, and they're always free to apply for. Scammers generally know that people understand that, so they don't bother trying to sell access to benefits. Government grants, on the other hand, are not so easy to get, and for individual people, it's just about impossible. Grants are similar to benefits in that they are both free to apply for, neither of them has to be paid back, government programs for each have to exist first, and I believe a certain amount of tax has to be paid on each of them as well.
The bottom line here is that if someone is actually trying to sell access to either benefits or grants, it's always a scam. They are both always free to apply for, you just need the required time to do so. My "grants" page is linked here, and there are three different grant scam videos here.
