The Ellicott City Partnership is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve the heritage and vitality of historic Ellicott City, Maryland while enhancing and creating economic growth.

For information about how you can help historic Ellicott City after the devastating flood of May 27, 2018, please visit our Flood Relief page.

Our organization was founded in 2013 through the merger of the  Ellicott City Restoration Foundation and the Ellicott City Business Association.

Working with business and community leaders, the ECP was instrumental in Old Ellicott City’s acceptance as a Maryland Main Street Community in 2014.

In the wake of the July 2016 flash flood, the ECP raised a total of $1.8 million dollars and administered five separate relief programs to 190 residents in 107 households, 90 businesses, and 81 property owners. Our organization shouldered $60K in administrative costs to support our  community.

The ECP continues to support Old Ellicott City businesses, residents and property owners through education opportunities, providing resources and marketing plus partnerships with Howard County Government agencies.

The Maryland Small Business Development Center continues to help aid our businesses.

As a non-profit and a Maryland Main Street, we rely on donations from individuals and companies to fund our programs such as these. Please consider investing in the future of Old Ellicott City by making a donation today.
