As a pilot program Pacific RISE continues to evolve and adapt as it works to support a social impact investment market in the Pacific.  Below is a short update regarding some of Pacific RISE’s operations.

Pacific RISE Scoping and Investment Readiness grant open rounds

Pacific RISE is undergoing a scheduled mid-term review. This is a great opportunity to reflect on our progress towards our program goals and to fine tune our operations going forwards and is a normal part of the Australian Government’s program management policy. The outcome, which is expected to be known in late September 2018, will advise whether Pacific RISE will continue beyond its current planned end date of June 2019.

Pacific RISE will continue to accept new applications for funding however, any proposals  for work beyond June 2019 will be placed on hold until the outcome of the mid-term review is known.

Support for intermediaries and investors

Pacific RISE is currently undertaking a short-term targeted action research activity to identify and support the needs of intermediaries and investors.  The findings will deepen Pacific RISE’s ability to support the execution of high-impact deals. Over the coming weeks there may be some changes as to the way that Pacific RISE engages with intermediaries and investors. Any questions please contact
