The Urban Enhancement Trust Fund (UETF) is a public endowment created by the Albuquerque City Council in 1983 to fund both capital and cultural projects. In 2004, the City Council amended the ordinance to provide that all funds available from the endowment should be directed to cultural projects.

The ordinance also provides for an eleven-member citizens' committee called the UETF Committee that is responsible for establishing guidelines, criteria for project selection for each two-year granting cycle and oversight for each funded project throughout the two years.
