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:

CTSI - USDA
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.

A MESSAGE TO ALL USDA CLIENTS:

We are coming out of the COVID-19 virus protocalls.  We are allowing 1 client into the building at a time to do your shopping lists and to bag your own foods.  If this changes, we will post it on the warehouse doors.   


We are accepting hand delivered application packets, but the preferred method of delivery is still email or fax.

It is a new year for the USDA program, that means that the income guiderate has changed as of October 1, 2019.   If you think you might be eligible, give us a call and we will try to get you certified for food.  Look at the guideline and determine gross monthly income, have all necessary paperwork available for each household member that has any kind of income such as social security, supplemental security income (SSI), GA, VA benefits, percapita if it is received monthly, child support received or paid or a retirement income.  We can also deduct $400 if you pay any utility or rent.  There are other deductions from income also, including CHILD CARE PAID, CHILD SUPPORT PAID, if you are an elder or disabled, we can deduct any monthly medical bills such as HEARING AIDS, PRESCRIPTIONS, GLASSES, HEALTHCARE PREMIUMS, RIDES TO AND FROM APPOINTMENTS, HOME HEALTHCARE WORKERS, and more.
