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

The ECP reinstated our disaster relief fund and is grateful for the donations from fundraising events and individual donations.  ECP was the only organization whose funds 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).

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.

Funds raised by the ECP after October 22, 2018 will be restricted to be used for longer-term recovery initiatives directly benefiting the ECP’s charter area.
