UPWP (Budget)

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is a framework for the planning activities and efforts that the FBRMPO will undertake for the fiscal year. Serving as both a budget and guide, the UPWP is adopted on an annual basis in accordance with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) guidelines. The UPWP illustrates the funding allocations from federal transportation planning funds, including highway and transit programs. An example of a few items outlined in the UPWP include project prioritization coordination, bicycle and pedestrian planning, special studies, and public involvement.
