Commercial Tenant Resource Center

March 27, 2020

Updated: August 3
CASTO is conducting business with protective measures in place to protect our associates, tenants and our communities. This includes practicing social distancing and keeping our corporate office closed. With that being said, we are still here. We are going through this with our tenants, owner and communities, and are working diligently to find creative avenues to provide resources and opportunities to our tenants that have been affected by this public health emergency.

We’d like to offer our assistance and want to equip our commercial tenants with resources that might help negate the negative impact this pandemic may have on its business. Below are some resources for our commercial tenants. CASTO will actively update the resource center as more information becomes available, however, we can not guarantee that the information below is an exhaustive list or the most up-to-date resources available to businesses.

We will do our best to support our tenants during this time.
