The Ellicott City Partnership (ECP) is heartbroken by the devastating flood our town experienced on Sunday, May 27, 2018.  


ECP has reinstated our disaster relief fund and is actively accepting donations from fundraising events and individual donations.  We daily update the growing list of fundraising events here.

ECP is the only organization whose funds will exclusively benefit affected business owners, property owners, and residents within the historic Ellicott City area, including Main Street and the West End (See ECP Charter Boundary map).  Funds raised through the ECP will be used for direct flood relief to those affected as well as for longer-term recovery initiatives.

The grant application process for flood-affected residents, business owners, and property owners opened on Monday, July 30, 2018 through the Community Foundation of Howard County.  The application process has closed and financial support requests are being reviewed.
