Arts Council of Midland (ACM), in collaboration with the City of Midland Hotel/Motel Tax Authority, grants dollars to area 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations for arts-related programming in Midland.


Administered by ACM, annual Subgrants are distributed once each year for programs that occur between January 1st and December 31st of each calendar year. Since 1989, ACM has Subgranted $2.7 million dollars in grants to the arts in our community. These funds help to support the wonderful art-related programming in our community such as Midland Festival Ballet's annual production of The Nutcracker , Ballet Folklorico programs at Hispanic Cultural Center of Midland, and community outreach performances with the West Texas Symphony.

We will hold an informational meeting via Zoom on Thursday, June 13th at 3 p.m. CST. Please contact our office to register for this Zoom meeting. Anyone is welcome to contact the ACM office at 432-687-1149 for consultation or to set up an appointment to discuss your organization’s Subgrant application.  You may also email me at


Subgrant applications are due August 15th by 5:00 p.m. CST. No late applications will be accepted.  

The Subgrants review process uses the following criteria to evaluate Subgrant applications:

  • Quality of programming

  • Demonstration of community involvement and outreach

  • Administrative and fiscal responsibility

  • Distribution of funds among various art disciplines

  • Accessibility of programs and facilities to minorities, low income, culturally disadvantaged and disabled people

  • Amount of ACM grant funds available

  • Must have a public component that takes place within Midland County
