The East Coast Greenway Alliance (ECGA) is the non-profit organization spearheading the development of the East Coast Greenway (ECG). Based in Durham, NC, the ECGA employs field staff in each of its four regions. The Alliance promotes the vision for connecting local trails into a continuous route, provides strategic assistance for states, counties, and municipalities that build local trail sections, officially designates trails as part of the ECG trail system, posts signage, and makes maps and guides to facilitate use of the Greenway.
The ECGA does not own any of the Greenway trail system, but plays a vital role in ensuring its continuity and in monitoring trail conditions to ensure consistency in trail quality. The ECGA will support local trail agencies in securing the funds to maintain their trails.
East Coast Greenway Alliance Mission Statement:
To partner with local, state, and national agencies and organizations to promote the establishment, stewardship, and public enjoyment of a traffic-free multi-user trail linking cities and towns from Maine to Florida.
