THE A FUND IS A BUSINESS AND JOB GENERATOR that was voted on and approved by Corpus Christi voters in 2002. The sole purpose of the fund is to help keep our city competitive in attracting and retaining businesses and jobs. The citizens of Corpus Christi are helping our city grow by dedicating 1/8 of a cent of sales tax collected toward economic development and job growth. An estimated $6 million in revenue are collected in the fund each year. HERE IS THE IMPACT.
