The Budget

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

The Unified Planning Work Program essentially serves as the budget for SJTPO, identifying funding to support planning efforts that SJTPO will undergo. The UPWP sets forth SJTPO efforts during the current fiscal year in support of transportation in the region. The Current FY 2020 UPWP, approved by the SJTPO Policy Board on March 25, 2019 details the planning efforts from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.

The FY 2021 UPWP, approved by the Policy Board at its March 23, 2020 meeting, will take effect on July 1, 2020.

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 year.

Since the UPWP essentially serves as the budget for SJTPO, it describes the planning activities to be performed with funds provided to MPOs by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The UPWP is an integrated document that includes the work of member agencies, consultants, and the work done directly by SJTPO Central Staff.
