Unified Planning Work Program

UPWP

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is adopted annually in accordance with joint Federal Highway Administration/Federal Transit Administration (FHWA/FTA) transportation planning guidelines. The UPWP describes the planning activities that are anticipated for the coming fiscal year and documents the allocation of state and federal funds associated with each planning activity.

The FY 2019 UPWP was approved by the CRTPO Board on March 21, 2018 and amended on May 16, 2018.  It is in effect July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019.

FY2019 Local Projects:

Local projects are transportation planning projects that use CRTPO funds but are administered by member jurisdictions. Funding support for the local projects comes from previously unobligated STBG-DA funds.. The project sponsor is responsible for the 20% local match.
