About the UPWP

Transportation Council
Eoin Wrafter, Commissioner


The 2018-2019 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) (.pdf) describes our annual planning work to address ongoing and emerging transportation issues. Preparation of the UPWP is required by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and serves as the basis for federal funding assistance for transportation planning. The UPWP helps our member agencies coordinate various planning activities and relate transportation planning concerns to other planning activities in the region. Funding support for the work program comes from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Dutchess County and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) provide the required matching funds for all UPWP tasks. We carry out our planning responsibilities in accordance with the federal Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) and related regulations and guidelines.
