"The Denton Program is a commodities transportation program authorized under Title 10 U.S.C. Section 402. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Department of State (DOS), and the Department of Defense (DoD) jointly administer the Denton program. The program provides the authority for DoD to use any extra space on U.S. military cargo aircraft to transport humanitarian assistance materials donated by non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations (IOs), and private voluntary organizations (PVOs) for humanitarian relief. Since Denton is a space available program, it is impossible to predict when transportation will be provided; therefore, no guarantees can be made regarding completion of a donated humanitarian goods shipment."
