Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

The Atlanta Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is developed annually and documents metropolitan transportation planning activities performed with federal, state and local transportation funds in the 20-county Atlanta region. The UPWP is developed in cooperation with the State, local governments, and public transportation operators and includes a discussion of planning priorities facing the metropolitan planning area.  A new UPWP is developed and adopted for the upcoming calendar year every December.  The 2022 UPWP was modified administratively in April 2022 and June 2022 to reflect new planning activities identified since the original document was developed.
