I'm going to start a new English-Arabic subtitling job with a new agency. They sent me an email telling me their rates. It was as follows:
Translations at 1.50 USD per minute runtime and proofs at 0.25$ per minute runtime.
I need to know first what do they mean by "proofs"
and what is your opinion of these reates? are they acceptable?

I can't tell you if the rates your agency is giving are acceptable or not, but most likely what the agency means by "proofs" is proofreading, or reading over for errors.
