This week a large number of dividend favourites announced their interim distribution guidance for FY 2021.

Here's a summary of what income investors can expect from these ASX shares:

APA Group (ASX: APA)

This energy infrastructure company revealed that it expects to pay shareholders an interim distribution of 24 cents per share for the six months ending 31 December 2020. This represents a 4.3% increase over FY 2020's interim distribution. It will be paid to shareholders on 17 March 2021.

Aventus Group (ASX: AVN)

Retail park operator Aventus announced a quarterly distribution of 4.2 cents per share for the December quarter. This is 5% higher than the previous quarter and brings its first half distribution to 8.2 cents per share. Shareholders will be paid this distribution on 24 February.

BWP Trust (ASX: BWP)

This Bunnings Warehouse landlord expects to pay shareholders an interim distribution of 9.02 cents per share on 26 February. This is flat on last year's interim distribution. Annualised, this equates to a 4.1% distribution yield.

Centuria Capital Group (ASX: CNI)

Commercial property fund Centuria Capital intends to pay an interim distribution totalling 4.5 cents per share for the year ending 31 December 2020. This is in line with its recently upgraded distribution guidance of 9 cents per share for the full year. This represents a forward 3.7% yield.

Mirvac Group (ASX: MGR)

This property company announced that it will pay shareholders a 4.8 cents per share distribution for the first half. This is down 21% on the prior corresponding period. Shareholders will be paid the distribution on 1 March.

National Storage REIT (ASX: NSR)

Leading self-storage operator National Storage announced plans to pay a 4 cents per share interim distribution to shareholders on 1 March. This is down from a 4.7 cents per share distribution a year earlier.

Vicinity Centres (ASX: VCX)

Finally, this shopping centre operator plans to pay shareholders an interim distribution of 3.4 cents per share for the six months ending 31 December 2020. This is a 55% reduction on the same period last year. COVID-19 has weighed heavily on its bottom line and ultimately its distributions.
