The Budget

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

The Unified Planning Work Program is one of the core planning documents, serving as the budget for SJTPO. The UPWP describes all transportation and planning related activities to be conducted by SJTPO staff, subregional partners, and member agencies during the state fiscal year, effective July 1st through June 30th. The Current FY 2022 UPWP, approved by the SJTPO Policy Board on March 22, 2021 details the planning efforts from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.

FY 2022 UPWP Coverpage

Federal planning regulations require that each year, MPOs are required to prepare a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), in cooperation with member agencies, to describe all metropolitan transportation and transportation-related air quality planning activities anticipated within the region during the state fiscal year. The tasks and activities within the UPWP are intended to advance the priorities of the region, guided by SJTPO’s federally required long-range, regional transportation plan and the planning requirements within the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act). The UPWP incorporates planning priorities shared annually by NJDOT, FHWA, and FTA.

A total of $1,856,119 in USDOT resources is programmed within SJTPO’s FY 2022 UPWP. An additional $665,433.23 of NJDOT Continuing Task Orders supplements the technical program in this year’s UPWP, for a grand total of $2,511,552.23. This does not include additional non-USDOT funding SJTPO receives from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety grant. The table below displays how those funds will be spent.
