FY2014 UPWP CoverThe HRPDC approved the FY 2014 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) at its April 18, 2013 Quarterly Meeting. The annually produced document describes the work activities that HRPDC staff will undertake during the fiscal year in support of the Commission and member localities.

The document is developed by HRPDC staff based upon input from the Hampton Roads’ local governments served by the HRPDC and various state and federal planning requirements. The planning activities in the UPWP address a wide range of programs, including emergency management, economics, housing and human services, and physical and environmental planning. The vast majority of the work elements evolved from local advisory and technical committees.
