Planning Work Program
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) describes how an MPO intends to spend its Federal planning funds, reflecting local priorities. It identifies transportation studies and other planning tasks that an MPO undertakes every two years. Each MPO must produce a UPWP every odd-numbered calendar year.
The UPWP or Work Plan defines the transportation planning activities that will be performed during a two-fiscal year period. FHWA, FTA, State and local funds are used to support the majority of these tasks. The Work Plan reflects the federal regulations and requirements.
