FDPIR Fact Sheet

The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) provides USDA Foods to income-eligible households living on Indian reservations, and to American Indian households residing in approved areas near reservations or in Oklahoma. Many households participate in FDPIR as an alternative to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), because they do not have easy access to SNAP offices or authorized food stores. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, administers FDPIR at the federal level. The program is administered locally by either Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) or an agency of a state government. Currently, there are approximately 276 tribes receiving benefits under FDPIR through 102 ITOs and 3 state agencies.

SY13 Average Price Explanation

Annually, FDD prices its USDA Foods based on last purchased price (LPP). The LPP is the last price per pound paid prior to November 15th. This price is then used on National Processors’ Summary End Product Data Schedules (SEPDS) as a basis for rebating or discounting finished product prices for USDA Foods. A proposal was made for FNS to use an average value to establish the rebate and discount value for USDA Foods. After an extensive analysis it was determined that establishing an average value for USDA Foods will result in a more favorable return to recipients
