Coordinated Entry (HARA)

Housing Assessment and Resource Agency


The Coordinated Entry Agency (CEA) is CRHC’s coordinated intake and assessment agency. While clients may not always come into our system via the CEA, all clients need to be assessed via the CEA or their partners. Our Coordinated Entry is administered by Holy Cross. More information can be found on the training page. If you would like to contact another community’s HARA, MSHDA maintains a list of HARA agencies in Michigan.

After an assessment, the Coordinated Entry Agency (CEA) will refer clients to the program or programs that best fit the client’s needs. The CEA also has limited funding for Rapid Re-Housing and homeless Prevention, but these are only available to eligible clients. For more information, please see this flyer, which also includes location and times for the CEA’s outreach into the community.

When referring a client to Coordinated Entry, please use HMIS if you are able. If your agency does not participate in HMIS, you can use this paper form or the following electronic form. These forms are only for use by providers in Ingham County.

Clients may not self refer.
