We are not able to allocate grant spending to other projects or make any determination (by OWASP staff or volunteer) on that money.  Depending on the grant I am guessing they will ask us to refund the money or use it to reboot the project itself.  Again, this decision isn't up to us it is up to the terms of the grant itself laid out by the granting organization.

In addition to being an important piece in management of funds, the IRS asks about the organization's procedures for monitoring the use of grants (especially outside of the US).
