Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

Prospectus [PDF]
State and federal law establishes the requirements for transportation planning in North Carolina. Federal funds, such as Section 104 (f) (PL) funds, are available for administering this transportation planning process in the MPO's. These funds are allocated on a reimbursement basis to the MPOs through a formula approved and administered by NCDOT.

A Prospectus is a reference document that provides detailed descriptions of work tasks for which transportation planning funds may be expended. The Prospectus defines the work tasks, how they are to be done, and the roles and responsibilities of the supporting agencies. These work tasks are then referenced in the Planning Work Program (Work Program), which is an annual funding document that identifies the work tasks that are to be accomplished in the upcoming fiscal year.

The MPO prepares an annual work program that outlines the work schedule, projects, and financing of the MPO staff for the fiscal year. 

The UPWP documents the use of Federal Planning (PL) Funds and MPO activities for state and federal agencies, public officials and the public. Each year, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) must approve it.
