MCALLEN – Reimbursement checks are heading to the Rio Grande Valley as payback for helping during the immigration crisis earlier this year.

A charity is already making plans for the more than a half million dollar refund.

Last year, Catholic Charities racked up $601,000 in expenses for housing and feeding immigrants.

The new funds from a FEMA food and shelter program are going right back into the effort to fill the gaps of the federal problem on the southern border.

However, the city of McAllen is still waiting for their contribution from the same program.
