The TerraNovas Tourism Association is receiving $342,109 from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) to upgrade and enhance hiking trails on the Road to the Beaches. The Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation is contributing $120,219 to the project.

Specific components of this project include upgrading, enhancing and expanding the Salvage trails to link them to historical, architectural and coastal experiences available; upgrading and re-routing the 'Old Trail' between Salvage and Sandy Cove to take full advantage of available scenic vistas at Newman's Sound and make linkages to the story of resettlement; improving the trail between Sandy Cove and Happy Adventure to link it to a traditional fishing setting in Happy Adventure; and, redevelopment of Eastport's High Tide Trail to link the community's two sandy beaches and popular family experiences.  

The Town of Glovertown will receive $351,552 from ACOA and $128,750 from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation to implement the second phase of the Glovertown Town Centre Plan.
