Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

Home » Our Work

The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is a one-year budget and planning document that lists the research projects, technical assistance, and other activities the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) staff will undertake over the next federal fiscal year (FFY). These projects provide insight and recommendations to our municipal and regional partners, generate new data, and help shape concepts for the region’s transportation future.
