Humanitarian Assistance Transportation Programs (HATP)


DoD provides transportation of humanitarian donations to partner nations at no cost to the U.S.-based NGOs.  Transportation is either provided on a space-available basis in DoD assets or on a funded basis in DoD-contracted shipping carriers.  


Global program management is performed by DSCA.  DSCA arranges with U.S. TRANSCOM for the transportation of approved humanitarian shipments.  

The Department of States (DOS) and USAID coordinate on each HATP shipment application prior to DSCA approval.

U.S.-based NGO organizations request accounts to participate in the program and then submit requests for individual shipments on the HA Transportation Website.


Two-year OHDACA appropriation (for funded transportation).
