The ECA is a non-profit, member-based community association. We engage in activities that improve the quality of life in the Eastport Community and build relationships with our local officials.
Membership is open to homeowners and renters who reside in Eastport.
This year's Unity Day, held August 20th at Harbor House Park, was a big success with a very good turn out. Many thanks to Davis' Pub for donating hamburgers and hot dogs, and to all the volunteers who made Unity Day a fun day for all. Next year’s event will be in June, so stay on the lookout for dates as they are announced. Learn more about this year's Unity Day.

The ECA awarded 8 grants - a total of $7100 - to local community organizations in the Spring awards cycle. All of the requests submitted were from organizations doing very good work. The Committee used the ECA mission statement and took into consideration the history of support that ECA had given in the past and recognized the importance of community partnerships and the need to give organizations, particularly small organizations, time to search for alternative funding in their deliberations. Requests submitted in the Spring, but not funded, can resubmit for the Fall grant cycle. New requests will also be welcome for the fall.
See which programs were awarded Spring 2016 ECA grants.
In time for Fall, the ECA Grants application is now available as an online form!
The deadline for applying for ECA grant money is quickly approaching. Interested local organizations or programs must apply online by September 15, 2015.
