KIMCO'S
COVID-19 RESPONSE

Kimco is committed to the health and safety of our tenants, associates, vendors, shoppers, and the community members in the areas our centers serve.

The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, while still unfolding, has significantly impacted each of these stakeholder groups, and we're taking important steps to offer our support.

 

Tenant Assistance Program

Quick access to capital may be critical to keep your business afloat through the coronavirus pandemic. With the CARES Act now signed into law, $349 billion was made available to small businesses through the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program. Although the initial funding has been allocated, a second round is expected shortly.

Funds are limited, and it is critical that business owners apply now through their existing lenders.

If you need help applying, Kimco can connect you with a legal team that can assist you in applying for funds, free of charge through our Tenant Assistance Program (TAP).

For more information or to connect with a Tenant Assistance Program representative at no cost, email tap@kimcorealty.com and identify the location of your business and preferred method of contact.

Kimco's Curbside Pickup™ Program

The COVID-19 crisis has significantly impacted the way customers access food and other essential goods, and therefore the way retailers operate may look very different today than it did just a few weeks ago.

At Kimco, we have spent the last several weeks with a singular focus – finding ways to support our valued stakeholders. To that end, we launched our Curbside Pickup™ program, which we hope will be a help to tenants and customers through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We believe strongly that this crisis will mark a permanent shift in consumer shopping habits, and services like curbside pickup, while already starting to gain traction before, will become part of daily life for most consumers going forward.

The program is designed to help businesses adapt to these new shopping habits, and to allow customers to ease back into a daily shopping routine while feeling safe and comfortable at their neighborhood shopping centers.

Supporting Communities

We are aware of the critical role our shopping centers play in the communities they serve, often providing access to essential retail and services such as groceries, drug stores, and doctor's offices.

  • With very few exceptions, our shopping centers remain open to continue to provide access to these critical goods and services, and we have taken steps to protect the shoppers and tenants at our sites, following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • We are closely monitoring recommendations and mandates of local/state governments and health authorities.
  • At the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., we immediately increased the frequency and intensity of our janitorial services to help prevent the spread of the virus. Areas such as public bathrooms, interior concourses and hallways, vestibules and shared doors, and elevators and escalators are being sanitized multiple times per day.
  • Our teams are also working quickly to provide additional assistance in the communities where we operate, finding creative ways to use our conveniently located centers during this difficult time. We are fast-tracking the approval of drive-thru testing centers, blood drive locations, and school lunch pick-ups, and several of our centers are already offering these services.

If you have a request to utilize one of our shopping centers for COVID-19 response efforts, please email jwestbrook@kimcorealty.com.

Supporting Our Employees

The health and safety of our employees and their families is a top priority. We have taken the necessary steps to protect our employees and empower them to work from home and care for their family members and children whose lives have also been impacted.

  • Beginning, Wednesday, March 11, Kimco transitioned nearly 100% of its workforce to work from home, ensuring they are safely situated during this critical social distancing period.
  • All business travel has been stopped until further notice.
  • Investments in new state of the art technology and software over the last year are proving to be invaluable, as our full team is equipped with new laptops and cellular capability to enable them to work from anywhere fairly easily.
  • Daily webinar training is being provided to ensure our associates are fully supported to work from home. Our human resources and information technology teams are available to all employees to address any needs or concerns they may have.
  • Associates will be granted the paid time off to care for themselves or family members should the virus impact them.
  • We've ramped up communications at all levels and have initiated company-wide virtual meetings such that executives are accessible, can keep associates informed, and employees' questions are answered.

We will continue to evaluate situations as they arise and adjust our approach as appropriate, with the goal to enable our employees to be as productive as possible while offering them the flexibility they need to care for themselves and their families.
