Our Medical Practice Makeover initiative aims to support small, independent medical practices that meet specific eligibility requirements below. In 2022, 20 practices were selected to receive $5,000 grants, in addition to extensive resources, PPE supplies, and a practice assessment.

The triumph of the initiative in its first year led to its continuation in 2023. This year, a total of $50,000 will be awarded to practices, with three winners announced every quarter. New awardees will receive up to $5,000 and past winners who re-apply and win will receive $2,500. The deadline for Quarter 3 applications is August 25, 2023.
