Abstract: The United States Navy (USN) provides substantial humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) to rest of the world due to its unique capabilities. Coupling these capabilities with those of Non-Government Organizations (NGO) would enhance the capacity of both the US military and the NGOs during disaster relief efforts. Such coordination between the two sectors in several significant areas would add to the efficacy and efficiency of the overall HADR operationby saving money for the USN. Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) operations are one of the core capabilities for US Navy (USN) as described in A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower. In this research, we plan to identify the NGOs in the area of responsibility (AOR) of three US Commands that respond to disasters and organize the data of their capabilities and limitations. We provide financial analysis in terms of financial efficiency defined as percent expenses related to services out of total expenses. The capabilities analysis is based on Sphere Project criteria to inform the USN about the capabilities of the players in HADR.
