There are a LOT of ways to do that, but here's one.  Once you have
tried this, you may see how to do something else that does more what
you have in mind:

Select the layer with the orange text, use the "select by color
tool" and select the orange text.

Make a new transparent layer.

Drag and drop (or bucket fill) to fill the selection with white, on
the new layer.

Do Filters > Noise > RGB noise

Change the newer layer's mode to Multiply

Do Colors > Desaturate

Use Colors > Curves to make the orange area look "gritty"

Use the Smudge tool to smear the grit around
