Through a program called TIF, or Tax Incentive Financing, the Ark Encounter is receiving a $62 million bond from the City of Williamstown, Kentucky.
This grant was uncovered by the Friendly Atheist’s Tracy Moody who attended a Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce meeting where Ham along with his Answers in Genesis board presented the latest news and projections for the Ark Encounter.
Moody noted that Ham not only touted the false attendance numbers as part of what she called an “hour-long spiel that could best be described as an Ark Park pep rally,” but he also was encouraging people with the money to snatch up commercial land in the nearby quickly.

So much for that whole claim by Ham that no taxpayer would unwillingly help fund his project.
