FDPIR provides USDA Foods to low-income 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 100 ITOs and 5 State agencies.
USDA purchases and ships USDA Foods to the ITOs and State agencies. USDA Foods are selected from a list of available foods. These administering agencies store and distribute the foods, determine applicant eligibility, and provide nutrition education to recipients. USDA provides the administering agencies with funds for program administrative costs.

NDDPI provides administrative and support services for 2 reservations and 1 Indian Service Agency in North Dakota. The food package allowed each individual is currently valued at $52.00. The agency also provides food ordering and warehousing services for 4 FDPIR agencies in North Dakota and 1 in South Dakota.
