- Practice Change Leaders receive $45,000 during the twelve month award period to support their projects and leadership development, and additional support for travel to the three highly interactive national program meetings.

Past Change Leaders include Dionne Lovett of Coastal Regional Commission and Fran Anderson, formerly of Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia (AAA).
