Epic announced a new, larger round of grants for game development. If this project needs more funding, this could be a source. https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/megagrants

Thank you for the information.

Consultant will take a peak at it.

but from what I can see it is for game developers such as ourselves however it is to convert to UE4, and unfortunately we started in UE4. :/

not sure what they will be willing to give to an indi who is already using UE4.

I think this is a job for Sara Clare. if she gets funding from Epic she can have an M&M, despite the whole twitter thing.

yeah I'm going soft in my old age.

From the FAQ page ( https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/faq ), it looks like they are just trying to be inclusive. But who knows?
We’re looking to support anyone doing amazing things with UE4 or for the broader 3D graphics ecosystem. To ensure that Epic MegaGrants delivers the most value to the community, here are a few considerations:

Games: Please submit game projects that are past the idea/design phase and have at least some form of working prototype. A link to a video of your working prototype would be ideal.
