The Unified Transportation Planning Work Program and Budget  (UPWP) spells out the MIC’s transportation planning activities as well as administrative activities, budgets and funding sources for each project for the current or upcoming calendar year.  Prior to 2018 the MIC developed two-year work programs but now focuses on a single year (at MnDOT’s direction).

The UPWP is updated annually to provide citizens and stakeholders the necessary transparency to see about how federal transportation planning funds are being used by the MPO in order to meet federal metropolitan planning requirements. The UPWP is developed by MPO staff in consultation with partner jurisdictions and agencies. It may be amended to account for changes in funding or project needs.
