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.

The UPWP is the MPO’s budget for planning activities through the fiscal year, including in-house planning activities and special studies undertaken in the region using MPO planning funds.

This Call for Projects serves to identify short-range transportation planning activities throughout the region. No set budget is allocated at this time from federal planning (PL) funds, and projects will be selected by the MPO’s Prioritization Subcommittee, TCC, and Board available to member governments in FY2023 with a 20% local match required from the project sponsor. Studies selected will be implemented as part of FY2023 PWP.
