I live in a hud apt. the apt mng asked for a security deposti and in addition a $300. pet deposit. is this correct?

Asked over 1 year ago - 56232

I am on HUD assistance and the county pay's for the majority of my rent.My apt has been un inhabitable due to the plumbing for the past 6 weeks and the drug and alcoholic tenants that live in the building. I am afraid for my safety. I have to stay with a friend. Furthermore because of my disability I had to relinquish my small dog so I no longer have a pet. They refuse to fix the plumbing or have the onsite mngr stop using drugs in public, help!!!
