The training programs branded New York City – Long Island – Lower Tri-County Public Health Training Center (NYC-LI-LTC PHTC) were developed by the formerly-funded center. The NYC-LI-LTC PHTC was a three-year partnership between Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and the State University of New York, Stony Brook’s Graduate Program in Public Health, in collaboration with the New York State Department of Health, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH), and the five county health departments of Suffolk, Nassau, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties. As of August 31, 2014, the NYC-LI-LTC PHTC ceased to exist under that name, as the Public Health Training Center program was re-organized by the 10 Department of Health and Human Services Regions (for more information, see History).

The training programs branded NY-NJ were developed by the former New York-New Jersey Public Health Training Center (NYNJ-PHTC). The NYNJ-PHTC was a ten-year partnership between the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, University at Albany School of Public Health, and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey School of Public Health. As of August 31, 2011, the NYNJ-PHTC ceased to exist under that name, as the three partners received individual grants to work more closely with and better tailor training offerings to the public health workforce in their respective target geographic areas.
