In the introduction of their occasional paper to the RAND Corporation, Chandra and Acosta (as cited in Chandra & Acosta, 2009) noted that non-governmental organizations (NGOs) just like their counterparts funded with taxpayers’ money are instrumental contributors to human recovery (p. 17). One of the similarities between NGOs and government agencies during emergency management is the facilitation of disaster recovery through the improvement of community resilience to withstand disasters. Meanwhile, the primary difference between them is the provision of specialized services. For example, the Red Cross is considered the referenced organization for Emergency Support Function No.6 that partly involves the supply of data on a certain aspect of the response to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and FEMA (Hoog, 2011, p. 2). An additional difference between the NGOs and government agencies lies in the regulation concerning the use of their resources. NGOs are not subject to the bureaucracy that hinders the impact of federal agencies. Although the manner of their deployment and function is subject to a congressional order, their means of accessing materials required for execution significantly differs (Haddow, Bullock, & Coppola, 2014, p. 125). There is a need to review legislations governing the role of NGOs during disaster response. (200 words).

” I would like to expand upon your point that NGO’s do not have the political red tape that government agencies have. When requesting assistance from federal entities, states must already have an active disaster recovery plan in place. On the other hand, NGO’s such as the American Red Cross do not have the same bureaucracy standards to meet before issuing help to affected areas. In cases where the president denies a request for help, the state or local communities are not left stranded to help residents with supplemental financial and food resources during recovery efforts.
