The four funds are The State Parks & Trails Fund, The Outdoor Heritage Fund, The Clean Water Fund, and the Cultural Heritage Fund. The total amount of money they get to split is about $240 to $250 million each year. That $240-$250 million is what is raised by the three-eighths of one percent increase in sales taxes that began July 1, 2009.
