The Unified Transportation Planning Work Program and Budget  (UPWP) spells out the MIC’s transportation planning and administrative activities as well as budgets and funding sources for the current calendar year.

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