NYMTC Principals Convene to Adopt 2022-2023 Unified Planning Work Program
Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the NYC Environmental Justice Alliance Presents Keynote Remarks
NYMTC’s Principal members met on February 24, 2022, to adopt NYMTC’s State Fiscal Year 2022-2023 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). This UPWP proposes about $57 million of funding for transportation-related planning activities to be undertaken by NYMTC staff and its member agencies for the upcoming program year. This includes more than $30 million in new funding. NYMTC’s UPWP is developed annually and defines the planning priorities in the 10-county NYMTC planning area within a given program year.
Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance, provided keynote remarks highlighting the NYMTC Council meeting theme: “Transportation Equity and Access under the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act”. He discussed the disproportionate impacts of transportation-related pollution to communities of color, such as the South Bronx, and cited the additional impacts of COVID-19 to these communities in terms of higher rates of illness and fatalities. The need for more investment in transit infrastructure to address these environmental disparities was stressed, and Mr. Bautista urged the Principals to take advantage of the flexibility available to the NYMTC agencies in the new Federal statute.

In an engaged discussion among the Council members and Mr. Bautista, the Principals acknowledged the region’s transportation needs and the opportunities provided by the funding made available through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and the New York State Capital Plan. They stressed the need to make sure that equity is considered in project decision-making, and noted the challenges to, and importance of, building consensus throughout the region on a framework of equity.
