The mission of the Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) Program is to enhance Salt Lake County resident and visitor experiences through art, cultural, and recreational offerings.
For each purchase in Salt Lake County that includes sales tax, one (1) penny of every $10 spent goes to providing grants to over 200 nonprofit organizations in the community.
ZAP primarily offers three categories of grant funding to art, cultural and botanical organizations: Tier I, Tier II, and Zoological. Each application is reviewed by the corresponding ZAP Advisory Board using a specific set of scoring criteria.

ZAP is also dedicated to the advancement of Local Arts Agencies and Recreation projects in Salt Lake County.
The 2020 Tier I & Zoological grant application opens the first week of March 2019.
