   I hope everyone has had a chance to check out the new income guideline and the increased (up $50 to $400) standard deduction.  Remember, we take your gross income and multiply it by the 20% tax deduction and then do the deductions, like child care, child support and the standard deduction if you pay rent or utilities.  If you are over 62, and have out of pocket medical expenses we can also deduct a portion of that.  All we need is 1 Tribal ID (any federally recognized tribe) in the household and we can certify the entire household.   If you have foster children that are tribal, we can also certify the household, and we count the payments that are received for those children.  We also count adoption subsidies if you have adopted tribal children.    



(Rev. 09/2017)



(Effective October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018)

The net monthly income standard for each household size is the sum of the applicable Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) net monthly income standard and the applicable SNAP standard deduction.

Blue Corn Mush Recipe

Bring 4 cups water to a boil, just before water boils, slowly whisk in 1 cup Ute Mountain Bow & Arrow brand blue corn meal. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook to desired texture, whisking constantly. Stir in 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 2 tablespoons Red Lake Nation organic maple syrup. If available add 1/2 teaspoon fine cedar ash as water is coming to a boil to increase blue vibrancy and give a nice hint of smoke. Serve with chopped pecans and toasted pine nuts and add your favorite fruit to complete your nutritious meal. 

* Indicates commodity foods used

If you or someone you know would like to get signed up to receive commodity foods, you can print the entire APPLICATION PACKET off this website. If you do not have a printer, contact the Siletz office and we can send you the packet. Once completed, mail it to:

P.O. Box 549
Siletz, OR 97380

If you are a certified client and have received an appointment slip for the next month, we request that if you cannot make it to your scheduled appointment, give us a call and we will try to reschedule you. If you have indicated on your application an AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE, they can pick your food up for you, or, if you show up before or after your scheduled time, we serve our scheduled clients first so you may have to wait.

If you are a walk-in, in order to serve you more quickly, please have all the documentation necessary to get you certified.

  • The most important thing to remember is that you cannot receive SNAP benefits & FDPIR (COMMODITY FOODS) in the same month.
  • 1 FULL MONTH of income verification for all adults in the home. Per capita payments received monthly is considered income and child support, foster care & adoption subsidies are all countable income.
  • Verification of childcare paid to someone outside the household.
  • Tribal ID or CIB, SS cards or the number for all household members.
  • Picture ID for all adult household members.
  • Shelter or utility bill with your name and address on it.
