The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s (CMAP) work — on behalf of 7 counties, 284 municipalities, and 8.6 million residents — is guided by ON TO 2050, the region’s 30-year comprehensive plan; a 5-year Strategic Direction; and the annual budget and work plan. CMAP summarizes progress toward our vision in an annual report.
This budget and work plan (approved by the CMAP Board) identifies the functions and responsibilities for the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) with the funding source and estimated resources needed to accomplish goals and objectives for these priorities.
Proposed FY25 budget and work plan
The CMAP Board approved the proposed FY25 budget and work plan. This document outlines revenues, expenses, and subawards to partner agencies and the associated matching funds for the next fiscal year. This budget advances CMAP's programs and activities which are detailed in the FY25 work plan. Additionally, it tells the story of who we are, what we do, and how we serve the region, as well as where the money comes from and where it goes.
The FY25 Unified Work Program (UWP), a companion document to CMAP's budget and work plan, outlines core activities carried out by CMAP, as well as core and competitive-funded activities. It will go to the Transportation Committee at their March 1 meeting and will be recommended for approval by the MPO Policy Committee at their March 14 meeting.
