ECA Grants Program

The Eastport Civic Association Grants program has been set up to support organizations that improve the quality of life for residents of Eastport. The funds supporting these grants are the result of the success of our Eastport Home & Garden Tour and the generosity of our residents. It is incumbent on us as stewards of these funds that they be dispersed in a professional manner.
