Grants Matcher Plug-in Developer Guide


The Grants Matcher Plug-in is a JavaScript application that can sit on any page on your own website.

Getting Started

Before the plug-in becomes enabled for your website it must first be configured using the Grants Matcher Configurator. You can access the configurator by visiting the Grants Matcher Plug-in area of the My Account page. If you are not the website owner but, for example, a developer who’s been asked to configure the plug-in then you should have received a link to the configurator when the owner shared access with you. If you don’t have the link then please ask the website owner to share access with you.


The configurator allows you to setup the plug-in to match your website. You can change the text, colours and various features to your requirements. At a bare minimum you must set the Website Address that the plug-in will be displayed on, for example,

Once you’ve set and saved the Website Address, the plug-in will be enabled for that domain and any of its sub-domains, for example, or

Adding the plug-in to your site

The plug-in is loaded using a <script> tag pointing to
The script will then look for a <div> tag with the id gbg-matcher and load the matcher into that <div>. For example:

<script type="module" crossorigin src=""></script>
<div id="gbg-matcher"></div>

You can either place the <script> and <div> tags together on a page, as above, or separately load the <script> in the <head> of your page and place the <div id=”gbg-matcher”></div> anywhere on your page you’d like the Grants Matcher to appear. Here’s a simple full page example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Get Business Grants - Grants Matcher</title>
    <script type="module" crossorigin

    <h1>This is your standard basic HTML page</h1>

    <p>You normal page content will be here.</p>

    <!-- The Grants Matcher Plug-in will load inside this div with the ID gbg-matcher -->
    <div id="gbg-matcher"></div>

    <p>You rest of the page is here.</p>
