Community Supported Arts, Culture & Recreation Grants
When you pay sales tax, 1 penny for every $10 dollars goes to benefiting the community by providing grants to over 160 arts and cultural organizations as well as 30+ park and recreational facilities.
Since 1997, the public has overwhelmingly voted in support of the ZAP Program. Residents renew this initiative every ten years.
