   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.    

 

 

Once again, USDA Food & Nutrition Services has increased the income guide rate to receive foods from our program. If you think you might be eligible, call our offices and we can help you.

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.
