McAllen Reapplying for Reimbursement for Respite Center Funding
MCALLEN – The city of McAllen is reapplying for reimbursement for thousands of dollars spent on humanitarian aid for people in the country illegally released by federal immigration officials.
The city has spent more than $700,000 since 2014 by providing services at Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley’s respite center at Sacred Heart Church located in downtown McAllen.
The city submitted an application to Gov. Greg Abbott’s office earlier this year. The governor then forwarded the request to FEMA.
FEMA asked the city to clarify some details and reapply.
